This past weekend’s 13th annual Paws for a Cause, held in Montoursville’s Indian Park to benefit the Lycoming County SPCA, attracted a number of participants and volunteers from Penn College. Timothy J. Mallery, assistant director of residence life and coordinator of housing operations at the college, was race director for the event, which this year added a 1K walk and 5K race. Some owners brought dogs for the run, a safe and scenic course that incorporated the park and the nearby bike path. Winning their divisions were Emily B. Miller, instructor of exercise science, and Brad L. Nason, associate professor of mass communications. Volunteers included college staff members Anthony J. Pace, assistant director of student activities for student organizations and orientation; Michael D. Penwell, coordinator of residence life; and summer interns Megan M. Kasper (Student Activities) and Matthew F. Walsh (Residence Life). Joining them were students LaQuinn N. Thompson, of York, an applied human services major; Amanda A. Dibble, Matamoras, nursing; John R. Bak, Milford, nursing; Lacey M. Watson, Muncy, accounting; and Caleb G. Schirmer, Sugarloaf, applied management (who provided the photos). Sunday’s event also included a Pet Expo, with a number of vendors, activities and refreshments.
